I tell you, there is nothing more fun than getting into a tank in Battlefield. I have been driving tanks in Battlefield since 1942. I even drove tanks in Call of Duty and they were just as much fun as in Battlefield. The destruction and power that you are given when driving one of these bad boys is just something else. Throwing fear into your enemy and watching infantry run and hide as they hear you coming in. Taking down engineers and C4 welding support (or recon in BF2/142) while rolling over vehicles is just great fun.


First, a congratulations to the Project Reality Team on 8 years of dedicated work to Project Reality, a Battlefield 2 mod. It will soon be out of beta and onto version 1.0. If play Battlefield 2 and would like to check this mod out you can see it here. It is a great mod with a lot of features and maps and they did a very good job bringing a more realistic approach to Battlefield.

Now back on topic…



So I was thinking about the lost blog writings at TGN and decided to see if Google still had them cached. Sure enough they have a few of them! So I decided to move these here. This was originally posted on March 31st, 2013.  Enjoy!


With the information of Battlefield 4 on the way and the suggestion threads going rampant I noticed many “more teamwork for BF4” threads. As I read through the threats of how if DICE didn’t bring back that they were not going to buy BF4 and that Battlefield was dead and DICE wants small pox on all of us and our children.

This made me think of the teamwork features that are built into BF3 and how we (as a gamer society) actually don’t use the features we have in the current game. This bugged me so much that I put the following line in my profile:

“We say we want more teamwork things in Battlefield, but we don’t even use what teamwork there is in BF3.”
Sadly I find it to be true and a few commented that they agreed with the statement. The thing is that it was actually true in BF2 and 2142 as well. To sort of prove my point on this go to YouTube and re-watch the video “A Pwned Life” It was such a great skit because it had a lot of truth in it and you can substitute the classes for any of the other Battlefield games.


The M16A3 has gone back and forth with the Battlefield Community about how the weapon is overpowered and needs to be nerfed, also known as weakened or toned down. Today there is so much argument about it that you can probably go into the Battlelog forums and find no less than three threads about it in the BF3 General section. People have complained about it so much that they will disguise their posts as other questions just to bring up the M16 argument. Chances are if the thread has to do with most weapons used, being “OP”, or “noob”, then the M16 WILL be talked about.

So is the M16 overpowered and should be nerfed? A good majority will instantly say YES. No second thoughts about it. They will say how quick it kills, how accurate it is, how any low level player can use it, and how you see it everywhere, by everyone, on the battlefield. If you think it is not and try to say something about it not being that way, they then look at your stats and if it is in the top 5 of your weapons, then you just don’t want it nerfed and you are a noob and your opinion does not count. It is #2 on my stats as of this writing, by the way.

So there you have it! The weapon is overpowered and needs a nerf. Thank you for reading.
